Hagiographa with commentary (Ee. 5.9): Satan strikes Job with boils

Artist name: Unknown artist

Around the Hebrew word “Ish” (“a man”), the opening of the book of Job appear Satan, Job and Job’s wife.  She stands on the left gesticulating, while Job lies in the center. Satan, with horns, a tail and reptilian feet, stretches his arm to strike Job’s head.
